Ruta is a ceramic artist working in Letchworth, but originates from Lithuania. Clay work is her passion - her ceramics are a visual representation of her life experiences. Her main inspirations are taken from tribal and ethnic art, nature, and also the qualities of the clay itself. Each piece Ruta creates is a microcosmic artwork - she explains, “I like to create small worlds”.
She uses terracotta clay to create her decorative pieces, and vibrant colourful glazes to hand paint them.
Ruta is a shortlisted winner of Liberty London’s 2018 #LibertyOpenCall - out of 9500 entries she is one of three winners. Take a look here.
We are always delighted to stock Ruta's beautiful handcrafted ceramics here at The Art Nest, and have done so since 2015.
